I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Dear friends, Our God gives us victory through our Lord Jesus. Victory over satan, sin, the world and our flesh is nothing but a gift that we receive from God. Without Christ we are weak and hopeless. But with Jesus we are victorious and we are more than conquerors. In return let us give ourselves fully to serve and glorify our Lord Jesus.
Through Christ, this is going to be another victorious week, in Jesus name!!!

I Corinthians 2:9 As it is written: “What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”
the things God has prepared for those who love him
Dear friends, what God has prepared for us in Christ Jesus is not set at the level of our imagination or expectation. Our God specializes in doing things that are beyond what our ears have heard, mind conceived and eyes have seen. What God has prepared for us is not what we deserve or what we work for. They are gifts of God’s amazing grace. Let us be thankful and live in absolute confidence that God is in charge of our future. All is prepared by God through Christ!!! Thanks be to God!!!

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very large.
My friends every time you look at the cross you see Jesus rolling away heavy stone of sin, guilt, satan, poverty, sickness and eternal damnation. All of those are rolled away by what is done on the cross. When you fix your eyes on Jesus, you will surly find your big stone rolled away. If you are in struggle and worried about it, hold on, stand strong and take a deep look at Jesus, you will find that stone rolled away. No matter how large the stone may be, nothing it too large for God.
We are conducting a mission conference for churches gathered in Edmonton, Canada. It is -15 degree below zero. Cold, cold, cold and some more cold rrrrrrrr but great joy in the conference hall.

Mark 1:2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”
Mark opens his Gospel with this words. I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way. God always prepares our way, may God also grant us faith to walk on it for His glory alone. Amen!!!

Nehemiah 4;14 After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
Dear friends remember these three major principles from Nehemiah, 1. Don’t be afraid, 2. Remember the Lord who is great and awesome, 3. Fight. Nehemiah was a leader in difficult times. He looked over the situation and gave these three powerful principles to his people. Fear not, Focus on the Lord and Fight for your family, you are dealing with a defeated enemy!!! We are studying and reflecting on leadership lessons from the book of Nehemiah in San Diego, California. Have a very blessed new week!!!!

The year you have been praying for, waiting for and hopping for has come. The Lord declares saying, “the year of my redeemed has come.” The is your year in the name our risen Christ.

Dear friends, I will be preaching in Minneapolis Dec. 29-31, 2013. Keep us in your prayers!!! We are crossing into 2014, our bridge is the Holy Word of God, the promise is true, your year has come!

Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Dear friends, for those who put their hope in the Lord Jesus, 2014 is going to be a great year of soaring high like eagles!!! In this year we will renew our strength through God’s grace and we will soar on wings of the Holy Spirit like eagles. 2014 is a going to be a year of soaring higher than your current circumstances.

Acts 27:33 Just before dawn Paul urged them all to eat. “For the last fourteen days,” he said, “you have been in constant suspense and have gone without food—you haven’t eaten anything. 34 Now I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head.”
Life in constant suspense is the opposite of living by faith. Here is a promise that ended living in constant suspense for people traveling with Paul in Acts 27 “Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head!!!” The day you gave your life to Jesus, living in constant suspense came to an end. Death, condemnation and Satan are defeated. Christ is alive, life in a constant suspense is over! Now let us rejoice, praise God and enjoy a new suspense free life.
Have a very blessed week!!!

Acts 27:23 Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me 24 and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.’ 25 So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me.
Dear friends, this was a powerful moment in the life of Paul. When Jesus promised to be with us in Matt. 28, that is the single most important and powerful promise we can count on in our life. Jesus is always faithful!!! Thus let us keep up our courage and have faith in his word alone!!! I will be in Salisbury and Charlotte NC tomorrow preaching in two location and in two languages. Keep us in your prayers. Have a very blessed weekend.
